(Section Five—Characters Six and Seven)
Today's "constellation personality" is Horn (角). Calendrical interpretations stress that it is an auspicious day, good for all sorts of activities (not the least construction and buying land). It is the first of the twenty eight constellation "personalities."
|[b] Horse RF|
The jianchu "personality" is Destroy (破), which is as bad as it gets in this cycle. Calendrical interpretations stress that just about anything you set out to do turns out badly (unintended consequences). Drive two miles over the speed limit, and they'll nail you (but twenty miles yesterday was fine).
There are two beneficent asterisms today, including Heavenly Horse (天馬) and Not General (不將). They're good.
There are three inauspicious (凶) two-hour periods, four in-between (中) times, and five auspicious (吉) times.

Things to Avoid
It's a bad day for Opening Granaries (開倉) and Capital Outflow (出財). In other words, don't tap the reserves.
Just Plain Counting
(Section Four—Characters 1-4)
It is the twenty-seventh (廿七) day of the second lunar month. The cycle of sixty character is #11: jiaxu (甲戌). The days cycle—1, 2, 3, 58, 59, 60, 1, 2, 3...—in perpetuity.
Elemental (and Phased)
(Section Five—Character 5)
Today's slice of the "Five Phases" (sometimes called the "Five Elements") is Fire (火). Ordinarily, the Five Phases weave their way, two-by-two, through the calendar. Yesterday was Metal. Today is Fire, and tomorrow is Fire.

Fear Your Unlucky Stars
(Bottom of Section Six)
The baleful asterisms (the bottom of section six) are Lunar Destruction (月破), Great Squander (大耗), and Debt Not (債不). The latter, unlucky or not, is always good advice.
Miscellaneous Omens and Activities
(Sections Seven and Eight)
Today's miscellaneous omens are Bifurcation (丫) and Heaven (天). The miscellaneous activities are Gate (門), Perch (栖), and Pestle (碓). Nobody knows what they mean.

So, keep your head on straight (and avoid swiveling between good-bad). Go see the doctor, but don't rifle through the granary. I'll see you back here Thursday night for a preview of Friday in Lunar World.
